10 Reasons Why Owners Love Their Northern Lite Campers.

2-Piece Fiberglass Construction
Two piece Fiberglass Clam shell truck camper design is built like a boat with only one seam making it one of the lightest four season truck campers on the market.
25% Lighter
Northern Lite fiberglass truck campers are built with chopped fiberglass and mating so no additional wood or aluminum framing is required, making them 25% lighter than conventional truck campers and results in the campers not being top heavy like a conventional built truck camper.
6-Year Structural Warranty
All Northern Lite Slide-In truck campers come with our industry leading six year structural warranty and are the only 5 Star rated Slide-in truck camper in all of North America.
Solid Hardwood Cabinets
All Northern Lite truck campers are built with solid plywood cabinets using solid hardwoods and paneling. No press board or photo finish panels are used. Nine ply Russian Birch is used in all drawers with full extension roller bearing drawer glides.
4-Season Insulation
All models are insulated using block foam insulation on the floor, walls, and ceilings with double insulation under the cab over bed.
Actual Weight
Unlike our competition, our campers actually weigh what we say they weigh not what we wished they weighed.
Under Mounted Jacks
All jack brackets are under mounted (both front and rear) so the entire camper is lifted instead of putting all the stress on the front and back walls and made of aluminum so they won’t rust.
Molded Design
Molded design improves aerodynamics, which results in better fuel mileage and handling as well it creates roof corners and edges that won’t leak like our competitors.
Easy to Maintain
High end gel coat finish along with only one seam makes is a very easy truck camper to maintain.

Over 30-Years of History

In 1989, a group of experienced RV builders, working for a major fiberglass truck camper manufacturer saw a niche in the RV market and established Northern Lite Mfg. to design and build a fiberglass truck camper to fit import trucks.

The company evolved and eventually began to produce a complete line of full-sized truck campers.

In 1989, two entrepreneurs, Mac Donkin and Lloyd Gartrell, who had sold their successful businesses and decided to retire, each purchased with their wives, a Northern Lite Camper for a once in a lifetime tour across Canada and the US and after that a tour to Alaska. After spending 7 months on the road traveling, these gentlemen were so impressed with the quality and workmanship of their Northern Lite Campers that they decided that when they returned home they would invest in this growing company. They felt that if they and their wives were so pleased with these campers, then other buyers would be impressed also.

After 4 years of being investors, Mac and Lloyd decided to buy the rest of the Company. Putting their business experience to work, and emphasizing the importance of building a quality product, Mac and Lloyd expanded the Company until today Northern Lite is now one of the leading manufacturers and exporters of molded fiberglass truck campers in North America.
